Health hazards due to the risk of infection result in enormous costs throughout the world. Chieftain Fabrics use Sanitized® antimicrobial in their vinyl products, which has been specifically developed to provide a high level of immediate and long-term protection against attack by micro-organisms. The Sanitized® hygiene function reduces the growth of microorganisms such as clostridia and antibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA, VRE and NDM-1.
The Sanitized® technology is added directly to the vinyl fabric during manufacture, protecting it from bacteria around the clock. This is especially important on surfaces that are frequently contaminated with germs and where ongoing protection between cleaning cycles is indispensable.
